In connection with the exhibit Shimmering Mirage: Anila Quayyum Agha, art historian Felicity Ratte presents The Alhambra in Time: From Nasrid Palace to World Heritage Site. This talk looks at the long history of the Alhambra palace in Granada, from its enrichment under the late Nasrid rulers in the second half of the fourteenth century through its transformation under the auspices of the Spanish kings to its rediscovery in the nineteenth century. The complex is now a UNESCO world heritage site and one of the most well preserved examples of an Islamic palace of the medieval period.
